Adobe has just sent out a great update for Adobe Illustrator Draw.

Now, users of the free application can access a number of brand new features in Adobe Illustrator Draw. More importantly, however, the app is now a piece of universal software that’s optimized for the iPhone, as well as for the iPad and iPod touch. User interface (UI) elements have also been optimized for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, allowing users to take advantage of the smartphones’ larger screens.

Besides this, Adobe has added an eye dropper tool to Adobe Illustrator Draw, making it possible for iOS device owners to point and pick out colors from a given image. Expanded stylus support, too, allows users of the app to enjoy drawing with precision using FiftyThree’s Pencil and Walcom’s range of styli.

Further to this, Adobe has added auto-save, shape enhancements, and a range of bug fixes to its free application. All of this means Adobe Illustrator Draw should perform better than ever on your iOS device.

To recap, here’s a complete list of changes made in Adobe Illustrator Draw:

  • EYE DROPPER: Sample colors with ease and accuracy using this familiar selection tool.
  • iPHONE SUPPORT: Draw is now available on iPhone—with optimized UI elements that look great on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus larger screens.
